    I placed my bid on the Ultimate WDW Collectible!!

    Well, I crunched the numbers and bit the bullet...

    I placed a bid on eBay for what I consider to be the Ultimate WDW Collectible:

    The Original Mark IV Monorail Red!!!

    OK, so to be honest, after "number crunching" I STILL can't afford $33,000 on a 33,000 pound monorail to sit in a backyard that I don't have yet. My DW was panicking, while my father was laughing (and promsied to help if the bid actually went through)

    Since the reserve wasn't met, I'm curious to see what the final price will be

    I'm liking the Alien Encounter seats that they have up for purchase at 25 bucks each...

    I wonder if the narration comes with the monorail...could you imagine sitting in your backyard in the monorail, pushing a button, and hearing Jack Wagner start describing the Seven Seas Lagoon area and Epcot? Oh, and how could we ever forget our personal favorite...

    Good luck, Ace!

    Lou's nuts! It finally happened, I think Pat is onto something.
    This is what happens to your brains boys and girls when you average 2.5 hours sleep nightly.

    BTW....Lou, you've been outbid now.

    BTW... before you all think I'm making way too much on my book and truly out of my mind...

    I knew full well that not only would my bid have met the reserve price, but that I would have been outbid quite soon.

    I was kinda hoping you would get the monorail-I was looking forward to a photo posted on here of you sitting in it in your living room or something.
    I am in need of some Disney magic!!

    Lou, you must really want this thing, or you have stopped bidding. Good luck (I am not going to outbid you), and I will be over to "ride" when you buy it, and that new house with a two car and one monorail garage!
